We Demand an Immediate and Public Investigation of Donald Trump's Ties to Russia
There is growing evidence that Russia influenced the 2016 Presidential election to help Donald Trump, with the expectation that Trump would use the White House to help Russia in return.

This is the most serious possible charge against Donald Trump: that he is a Russian agent who will put Russian interests ahead of ours. This is the Constitution's "High Crime" of Treason.

President Obama warned top Senators of Russian interference before the election, but  Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell refused to challenge Russia for partisan reasons.

Now Senate Republicans are vaguely promising an investigation of Russia in 2017, but that would be far too late. If Russia helped Trump, the American people must find out in time for the Electoral College to choose a different uncorrupted President on December 19.

We therefore demand an immediate and public investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election, as well as Russian influence over Donald Trump and his advisors.

This immediate investigation must be conducted by:

- Loretta Lynch, Attorney General of the United States
- Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, who will remain in office in 2017
- Ultimately by an independent commission like the 9/11 Commission since the Senate itself is directly involved in this scandal


Unless this investigation is immediate and public, many Americans will conclude that Donald Trump is a Russian agent who could become a Traitor to the United States.
